13 arrested after another protest blocks M25

Part of the M25 was blocked again this morning, as protesters glued themselves to the road.

After a group blocked part of the M25 just outside Bucks this morning, 13 people have been arrested.

They blocked the road near Junction 18 during rush hour, whilst another protest happened over on the A1M.

Some had glued themselves to the carriageway.

Herts Police say 76 people have now been arrested in the past week in connection with protest activity.

Chief Superintendent Nick Caveney said:

“Protestors have made it clear that they intend to continue causing disruption. Not only is purposely blocking a highway incredibly dangerous, it also affects thousands of members of the public who are stuck in delays as a result.

“We have robust plans in place in order to minimise any disruption and to allow us to make arrests as quickly as we possibly can. This includes, but is not limited to, monitoring areas that have been identified as possible protest targets.

“Officers were on the scene within minutes of being alerted to protest activity, allowing us to put diversions in place to ease the traffic and to make numerous arrests. All protestors involved in this morning’s protests have been arrested and will be taken to custody.

“We are working closely with other affected forces to ensure that any further activity is dealt with effectively and efficiently.

“I understand and appreciate the frustration regarding the considerable delays and inconvenience that has occurred as a result of the protests.

“We have now made a total of 76 arrests in relation to protest activity across Hertfordshire over the last week. Please be assured that a full investigation is underway, and we are in the process of gathering evidence in order to ensure that those breaking the law are brought to justice.”
